Seems like J&G Sales are the only ones that have them in stock. I read somewhere that RIA is expanding their production area, so supplies have been tight, but should open up:

I had one that was not reliable, even after going back to the factory. They finally gave up and sent me a new one, which I sold. My experience is probably the exception.

I have a 5" government model RIA and it shoots grear, I got it used and the throat had been polished but it's stock besides that. Nice gun for the money and it feels good. I'm not a fan of the stock slick grips though, changing them asap.

awesome budget 1911. works great, my friends shoot them, ive personally fired a couple hundred rounds through one, nice functioning gun. really basic looking. good price.

if i were to buy any Filipino gun, id buy a Metro Arms ACII.... much better looking, better fit and finish, functioned just as good. same friend owns that one.

I have a GI spec RIA for 3 years. No problems to mention in over 1,000+ rounds. Best bang for the buck for daily carry IMO, when compared to my Colt and my R1. RIA is series 70 firing pin, while Colt and R1 have firing pin safety.

OP should also consider the ATI, which looks to have a better finish over the RIA.
